One last question. This pack has a lot of warning labels in regards to it's handling and operation... How does this thing do when traveling on an airplane? Can you carry it on along with the rest of my camera gear. I've never had a problem traveling with batteries (AA+Canon Batteries) but this thing is way more powerful. I'm heading out of town next month and will be carry this with me.
"Out of town" is about as unspecific as you can get - is that within California, inter-State or International? After recent events, there are now innumerable regulations about (specifically) Lithium batteries but there is no general consensus as yet. The broad thrust of these regs. seems to be severe restrictions on
- Loose batteries (ie not installed in the equipment they power).
- Checked (ie hold) luggage as opposed to cabin baggage.
How, or even IF, these restrictions are implemented is debatable, variable, open to interpretation by Agents and possibly even subject to their comprehension of the different types of lithium battery.
I have twice had spare (loose but securely packaged, with safety covers)
Canon lithium batteries queried, let alone something like the CL4500 with considerably greater discharge capacity. The best idea would be to check with your specific
airline(s) and airports rather than accept broad, unqualified but well-intentioned advice here. The fact that "Person A"
has already done what you want to do isn't any guide as to what may pertain on the day you travel, on the airline(s) you use, on the airports you pass through or even the countries you visit. ASK YOUR CARRIERS!
